Our firm is based in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), a renowned international financial hub, providing unmatched financial infrastructure.
It is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), under the Framework of the English Common Law.
The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is a purpose-built financial free-zone, which is located within the Emirate of Dubai in UAE. It was established in 2004 under the Federal Law and it is consistently recognized as the leading financial centre in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia region. DIFC has been ranked 10th in “The Banker” (part of the Financial Times Group) magazine’s annual International Financial Centre (IFC) rankings, placing it alongside hubs such as London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.
With its own independent, internationally recognised regulator (DFSA) and judicial system, English Common Law framework, global financial exchange, tax-friendly regime, and a large, cosmopolitan business community, it is a leading international financial centre, providing a stable, mature and secure base for financial institutions to develop their whole sale businesses.
The district houses hundreds of financial institutions, including wealth funds and private investors, but it also hosts multinationals, retail outlets, cafés, restaurants, residential spaces, public green spaces, hotels, and art galleries. Currently has more than 1000 registered companies, which includes top 30 banks, top 20 money managers, top 10 insurance companies and a position on top of the Global Financial Centre.
Located midway between the global financial centres of London in the west and Singapore in the east, DIFC fills a vital time-zone gap with a workday that bridges the market and business hours of financial centres in both Asia and North America.
